Pipe Relining And Pipe Replacement Explained!

One common household problem that every homeowner dreads is discovering damaged pipes somewhere in their property. Before the creation of pipe relining technology, the only way to repair or replace broken pipes was by digging a trench and removing the old pipe. This was extremely expensive, could last for several days and severely disrupt your perfectly  manicured lawns and garden bed. Now, experienced plumbing contractors like Sewer Surgeon can do the same work in a fraction of the time with minimal digging or damage to your landscape.

While pipe relining is becoming much more common, homeowners are left to question whether it is more convenient to go with the traditional or trenchless repair. Here are a few factors worth considering:

  • Every project is different, but a traditional pipe repair cost is far more expensive than the trenchless repair cost. Obviously, digging into the ground to get to a damaged pipe is going to take a lot of expensive labor and equipment, not to mention the labour required to then return your home to its original state once your pipe repair has been finalised.
  • As you can imagine, when someone has to go underground, it requires a good amount of time. In fact, the work is so extensive that it can sometimes take weeks for your sewers to be back in working order. We know that putting your life on hold for that long is unacceptable!
  • It doesn’t have to be this way! At Sewer Surgeon, we use the latest technology to make your pipe repair experience less stressful and less costly. We are confident that our pipe relining solutions are just what you’ve been looking for!
  • Relining your pipes involves several steps. First stage requires any blockages being removed from the pipe, and we will do this by using a high-pressure jet blaster which uses water to cut through any obstacles in the pipe, including tree roots. Once the blockages have been removed, we will use a CCTV camera to inspect and locate exactly where and what type of plumbing problem you’re facing. Once we diagnose the problem, we will then insert the pipe reline into the damaged section of the pipe and allow it to set. The resin cures quickly and is set within two to four hours, which forms a solid lining within the pipe. Trenchless pipe replacement is one of the biggest breakthroughs in plumbing technology in the last several decades.
